love poetry entitled To Marry 
Strangers.

range special interviews with Mr. 
Morton for all students interested 
in having him criticize their 
poetry. 



WE Institutes 



epresemation 



It 



As New Policy 

"We" is instituting a new policy 

this year,' announced Ann Ray- 
mond, '46, editor-in-chief. "This 

year Wellesley's literary maga- 
zine will represent Wellesley — 
what it writes, what it is, what it 
thinks. All our articles, stories, 
and cartoons wdl be dedicated to 
this task." 

The physical appearance of the 
magazine is to be greatly changed, 
she declf""" 1 ''be pages will be 
larger (1Y>"x10W), with more 
uaudDie iJinK, cnu will nave me 
same cover each issue, changing 
color in keeping with the season. 
The cover is similar to the one 
ap^arinrr «n * v "' <i' ,n ' issn^. 1 -t 
spring, resigned by Betty Larson 
'46, and remodeled by Ann. 

The magazine will be published 
only twice a semester, so that the 
editors will have time to select the 
best of what Wellesley is writing 
and thinking. In this way they 
hope to demonstrate to the college 
their belief that Wellesley has a 
definite need for a magazine, and 
on this basis become a major or- 
ganization. 

Varied Contents 

Many of "We" 's contributions 
come from the staff, -and the Dept. 
of English Composition. Ann em- 
phasized especially, however, that 
contributions from outside sources 
and non-composition majors are 
earnestly solicited so that the mag- 
azine will be truly able to express 
the diversity of Wellesley's

Professor Der Nersessian Studies 
Byzantine Manuscripts at Harvard 

Only Woman Invited To 

Harvard Research Like 

At Dumbarton Oaks 



by Mar da Vickery '47 
"My time studying Byzantine 
manuscripts at Dumbarton Oaks 
Research Library," said Professor 
Sirarpie Der Nersessian, chairman 
of the Department of Art, "was a 
most pleasant and profitable one." 
Tne only woman yet invited to 
Harvard's Dumbarton Oaks Re- 
search Library and Collection in 
the capacity of a resident scholar, 
Professor Der Nersessian spent 
last year there while on leave of 
absence from Wellesley. Dumbarton 
Oaks, in Washington, D. C, has 
been a center for medieval research 
in this country since 1940 when it 
was given to Harvard by Mr. and 
Mrs. Robert Woods Bliss in order 
to further study the civilization of 
the middle ages, especially that of 
the Byzantine Empire. 

One of a small number of special- 
ists in the Byzantine period invited 
there each year to continue their 
research, Professor Der Nerses- 
sian's special field was that of 
Byzantine manuscripts. Her work 
centered around one manuscript in 
particular, an illustrated collection 
of lives of the saints, made in the 
eleventh century for one of the 
Byzantine emperors. The manu- 
script belongs to the Walters Art 
Gallery in Baltimore from which it 
was sent to Dumbarton Oakes for 
Professor Der Nersessian's use. "It 
has been a work of a number of 
years," explained Professor Der 
Nersessian, "during which I have 
Studied not only tnls but related 
manuscripts from the art historical 
point of view." 

"At Dumbarton Oaks, we worked 
•11 in slightly different aspects, 
continued Professor Der Nerses- 
sian, "but our time was our own, 
and we had many discussions of 



ideas. The library facilities were 
fine with a good staff — it was a 
pleasure to work there." Professor 
Rand of Harvard, Professor Friend 
of Princeton, and Professor Vas- 
siliev, formerly of Wisconsin, were 
among her colleagues at the re- 
search center. 

Professor Der Nersessian has al- 
ways been interested in the Byzan- 
tine period, but not always from 
the standpoint of its art. "With me, 
it was first history and then art; 
then gradually what had been the 
secondary became the first interest 
and I gave all my time to the study 
of history of art and especially the 
Byzantine period." 

Born in Constantinople, the capi- 
tal of the medieval Byzantine Em- 
pire, Professor Der Nersessian 
says she cannot remember a time 
when she has not been interested in 
the culture of that period. Later, 
while living in Paris and studying 
at the Sorbonne and in Switzerland, 
this interest prevailed. 

"I was invited to Wellesley in 
1930 to teach for one semester, and 
that invitation was renewed for 
five years! I have been here per- 
manently since 1934," explained 
Professor Der Nersessian. Since 
1937, she has been chairman of the 
Department of Art. During this 
time she has given graduate 
courses at New York University 
and at the Ecole Libre des Hautes 
Etudes, the Franco-Belgian univer- 
sity in New York City. The latter 
group of lectures were published 
in spring of this year in book form 
by Harvard University Press 
under the title A Brief Study of 
Armenian Art and Civilization. 



Noel Coward Farce Haunts 
Alumnae Hall Boards As 
"Blithe Spirit" Takes Over 




Cast of Blithe Spirit with Mr. Frederick Jessner 



Council Decides Fewer 
Students Should Help 
With Dormitory Work 

Students should be used for 
work in the dormitories only to 
supplement regular maids. This 
is the conclusion reached at the 
College Council meeting last Fri- 
day when the work problem was 
discussed. 

Other possibilities for staffing 
the College while womanpower is 
still unavailable are: 1) Students 
doing volunteer work; 2) Students 
cleaning their own rooms with 
maids doing the work in the din- 
ing room and public rooms, or 3) 
Paid students doing dining room 
and bell work. If every student 
were required to do a certain 
portion of work it would be eco- 
nomically impossible for the col- 
lege to pay student help. Other 
than this the college would have 
no objection to paying students 
except for the cleaning of their 
own rooms. 

The college would like to have

W. R. Chapline, Range 
Research Head, Talks 
On Land Conservation 

"Conservation: Its Relation to 
Watersheds" will be the topic of 
Mr. W. R. Chapline's lecture in 
Pendleton at 4:40, Wednesday, 
October 24. He will illustrate his 
lecture with sound film. 

Mr. Chapline, a graduate for- 
ester of the University of Michi- 
gan, is Chief of the Division of 
Range Research, U. S. Forestry 
Service. He is the author of a 
number of scientific reports and 
has worked on the "Range Plant 
Hand Book." 

In 1937 the Department of 
Agriculture sent Mr. Chapline as 
a delegate to the International 
Grass Lands Conference in Wales. 
Early in the war he aided in ex- 
periments to derive synthetic rub- 
ber from the guayule, a Mexican 
plant, and the koksagi, the Rus- 
sian dandelion.

Noel Coward Farce to be 
Presented November 2, 3 

Mardette Edwards '45, Betty 
Langheck '46, and Flo-Harriet 
Taylor '47 will play the leading 
roles in the Barn Production of 
Blithe Spirit, Noel Coward's farce, 
which will be presented November 
2 and 3 in Alumnae Hall. As re- 
hearsal swings underway Mr. 
Frederick Jessner, the director, re- 
marks, "It locks very promising." 

In this farce which depicts the 
troubles of an author whose first 
wife is brought back by a medium 
to haunt the author and his second 
wife, Mardette Edwards will por- 
tray Elvira, the rejuvenated first 
wife; Betty Langheck, Ruth, the 
second wife; and Flo-Harriet Tay- 
lor will play the part of Madame 
Arcati, the whimsical medium. 

Other students in the cast, in 
order of appearance, are: "Mon- 
key" Dunn '46 as Edith, the maid 
who never walks when she can 
run: and Mary Lou Mac Isaac '46 
who plays Mrs. Bradman, a guest 
who is present at the seance. 

Mr. Alec Robey, a wool-mer- 
chant of Cambridge, will play the 
role of Charles, he haunted author. 
Mr. Robey is i member of the 
Cambridge Drama Club and was 
prominent in their production last

Wellesley Graduates Will Print 
Novels Dealing With Modern Life 



by Dot Mott '48 



He who terms Wellesley an 
"ivory tower" should first con- 
sider two of its recent contribu- 
tions to the literary world, Mary 
Vardoulakis '44, and Margery 
Miller '45. Unbelievably success- 
ful their first works (yet unpub- 
lished) deal realistically with 
problems and personalities of a 
modern world. 

Vivid and moving, Mary Var- 
doulakis' Gold in the Street is 
the turbulent story of the great 
Cretan immigration of the early 
1900's and more particularly of 
her parents who chose to live in 
a small factory town in Massa- 
chusetts. Their struggles with 
problems of a new existence, fac- 
tory wages and racial issues, 
coupled with the vast difference 
between the clean olive trees and 
blue Mediterranean of Crete and 
the smoke and filth of the fac- 
tory town make a plot of no minor 
interest. 

It was through the influence of 
a Greek teacher in a Hartford 
high school that Mary even con- 
ceived the idea of a college edu- 
cation. Realizing her great po- 
tentialities, a Greek-American so- 
ciety in the same city gave her 



a scholarship. In the fall of 1940 
Mary Vardoulakis came to Wel- 
lesley. 

Best Novel Entered 

The Dodd Mead prize committee 
in awarding her the coveted prize 
for 1944, judged Gold tn the 
Street the best novel ever entered 
in the contest. From her father 
and uncles she gleaned the plot 
for her fascinating story, the con- 
flicts of a new world. But her 
background comes from personal 
experience in Crete, from living 
amongst her people for a few 
years when in her early teens. 
Her impressions of Crete are com- 
bined with an undying admira- 
tion for the bi-ave people who 
lived so valiantly under the Nazi 
regime. This feeling of national 
pride runs throughout the novel. 

At present, Mary Vardoulakis 
is with the Office of War Informa- 
tion in Washington, waiting for 
her book to come off the presses 
towards the end of this month.

Dr. Emerson To 
DiscussUNRRA 

Next Thursday 

"UNRRA— The United Nations 
First Peacetime Attempt at Co- 
operation," will be the subject of 
a lecture by Dr. Rupert Emerson, 
formerly a professor of govern- 
ment at Harvard and now with 
the FEA, Thursday, October 25, 
in Pendleton Hall at 3:30 p.m. 
Dr. Emerson, alternate delegate 
to the United Nations Relief and 
Rehabilitation Administration con- 
ferences, is the second speaker in 
this year's series of Forum lec- 
tures. 

In his capacity of alternate to 
William Clayton, United States 
delegate, Dr. Emerson has been 
able to attend all UNRRA con- 
ferences. Included among these 
was the conference held in Lon- 
don this August where he served 
as chief representative of the 
Foreign Economic Administration. 

A tour of the continent last 
winter with Judge Samuel Rosen- 
man, Presidential adviser, enabled 
Dr. Emerson to make a first-hand 
study of the problems and condi- 
tions created by the liberation of 
occupied Europe. Dr. Emerson 
also serves as the special assist- 
ant to the administrator on liber- 
ated areas and UNRRA affairs.

MACHINES NEED MEN 



America today has at her command a stag- 
gering array of instruments of war. Research 
techniques and production methods have be- 
come the Maginot Lines of our democracy. As 
General Marshall pointed out in his biennial 
report, we lead the world in the machinery of 
power. But this machinery alone is frighten- 
ingly inadequate. We must continue to supply 
manpower to give real life and meaning to 
our power of attack. 

Whether we like it or not, our nation has 
m.w become largely responsible for the main- 
tenance of order throughout the world. The 
mission i- perhaps a wellnigh impossible one 
No nation in history has established a truly 
lasting peace. Bui the lessons oi previous ef- 
forts can provide classic examples for our own 
attempt. And in those examples, the factor 
ol manpower has been of undeniable signifi- 
cance. 

Some program which will give our country a 
substantial citizen army, available in am emer- 
gency seems to offer the best insurant'-' that 
America will not be caught short in a man- 
power disaster. Despite the inducements being 
ered by various branches of service, it is 
already evident that we will not be able to 
• Muni on a sufficient professional force. A 
peace nine drafl can give us the assurance thai 
our nation will never lack for men to make 
our machines count. 

Objections to a peacetime drafl and a citizen 
army are in the last analysis nothing more 
than a personal refusal to assisl America in 
fulfilling her obligations to the world which 
is crying desperately for peace fo prepare 
for war as a protection of peace may uol be 
an idyllic state >>\ affairs; bul we are confronted 
with a problem which is precisely the uglj 
lism of survival. To have weapons is merely 
a negative defense. To bave weapons in the 
ml- ol adequately prepared men is our one 
hopi oi a positive defense— our one hope of 
al for oui nation and the world.

increasing for all those connected with Wel- 
lesley. As the semester progresses it seems to 
be the natural course of events that life gets 
more hectic with quizzes, papers, meetings, and 
various other functions crowding the familiar 
( .a. calendars. And the usual excuse to escape 
obligations or to soothe guilty consciences is 
"But we jusl don't have time for everything 
li.it — there's so much to do." 
However, wander into a dorm in the middle 

Of the afternoon or night and then' will 1"' 

girls sitting around "bulling." Drop in some 
weekend and see how empty a dorm can be. 
II each student would think about it. 
she would find that even when she is mosl 
busy she wastes hours— precious hours— merely 
because there is a group next door, and she 
hasn't the will power to stay away. But it can be 
argued. Why once we have filled our college 
obligations, isn'1 our tunc our own to waste it 
we wish'.' 

The answer lies in the fact that college is 
but four years out of a life— that Wellesley is 
but one minute spot in a world seething with 
troubles and unanswerable problems. Every 
student owes it to herself and to the world 
she will soon have to face to be dissatisfied 
with merely going to classes, passing quizzes, 
and attending meetings. She should not be 
satisfied with passing an economics exam if 
she doesn'1 understand the impending infla- 
tion this country lace-. She should be ashamed 
to be caught without a definite opinion on the 
vital questions of our day. There are only 
twenty-four hours in a day but it is possible- 
even for Wellesley students— to apportion that 
time, to weed out the unessentials, and to re- 
serve a place for a little extra study and thought. 

Perhaps you would do more reading in your 
major if there were a Junior Reading Course, 
one of the most popular suggestions in the Edu- 
cation Committee Report. But wouldn't you 
perhaps waste more tiim and just do the re- 
quired minimum? No, it is not up to Wellesley 
to give us more time until all of us, as individ- 
uals, prove that we use all the time and knowl- 
edge we have as constructively as possible. 



Beyond the Campus 



by Givny Guild '40 




Everyone, especially Latin 
Americans appreciates a sympathe- 
tic audience. 
While the stvug-p| 
gling democratic] 
element in Argen-j 
tine bouts with] 
the fascist regime 
of Farrell, we hadj 
better be ex- 
tremely careful 
not to turn; 
around disinter-] 
estedly to talk to 
the people be-1 
hind us while the] 
match i s goin 

on. They need us in there cheering 
for them, urging them on. We 
should hardly sit back in our com- 
fortable seats just because we 
haven't had to fight that hard for 
freedom in our own country for a 
long, long time. The opposition of 
university students and news- 
papers to the Peron-Farrell dicta- 
torship was good indication of a 
fighting spirit. The forced resigna- 
tion of General Peron and the re- 
lease of the military personnel who 
revolted a few weeks ago raise 
the score for the liberal patriots of 
Argentine. Our enthusiastic ap- 
proval will help to encourage them 
to keep up the fight. 

UNRRA Appropriation 
UNRRA is supposed to get from 
the United States, along with the 
other United Nations, one percent 
of the national income in 1943, that 
is $1,350,000,000. We have already 
put $700,000,000 of that into the 
fund; and now UNRRA finds that 
it is not going to be able to stretch 
its present funds out to finish the 
fight aeainst starvation and cold. 
Congress is being asked to appro- 
priate the rest of the money we 
have already promised, $500,000, 
000. Without this, UNRRA will 
fail — and not from bad administra- 
tion. It will fail without having had 



a fair chance to do a job that must 
not be left undone. It seems that in 
a matter such as this, where we 
have so much and the great major- 
ity of others have so little, we ought 
to ponder about how much one per- 
cent more, say an additional $1,- 
350,000,000 of our national income, 
will mean to us if we hang on to it 
selfishly as compared to how much 
the bare necessities of food, cloth- 
ing and shelter will mean to those 
whose lives depend on it. 
45 Major Wars 
"Information, Please" is a game 
that this column would ordinarily 
prefer to play smugly at its own 
radio, far from the danger of being 
overheard by Clifton Fadiman and 
the radio audience when it blurts 
out the wrong answer. However, it 
is feeling benignly statistical this 
week and is happy to play with 
you. It was startled itself and 
wants to startle you* For one thing, 
there have been 45 major wars in 
the past hundred years. If one were 
to count up all the nations who 
have not been in even one war dur- 
ing the last century, one would stop 
counting abruptly at the number 
eight. These placid lands are none 
other than Sweden, Switzerland, 
Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Oman 
(just off Arabia), Tibet, and Mon- 
golia. This does not count revolu- 
tions, interior clashes and near 
wars. Our own peace-loving union 
has been guilty of six conflicts, 
which is a mere rehearsal com- 
pared to Great Britain's 14 and 
France's 13. They hold the world 
record. This odd parcel of informa- 
tion need not be accepted as dis- 
couraging. Actually, it ought to 
serve as a challenge to the next 
hundred years — and at least as a 
reminder of the diseases from 
which the world is obviously suf- 
fering if we have averaged a major 
war every other year for the last 
ten decades.

STRIKES 

"We are having our little troubles just now. 

. . They are not serious. Just a blow-up 
after the let-down from war. And we still 
have a few selfish men who think more of 
their own interests than they do of the public 
welfare." Thus President Truman analyzed 
the series of strikes breaking out all over the 
country. It is to be hoped thai thinking col- 
lege students will not accept such an over- 
simplified analysis of human problems and 
human needs. 

These working men and women arc the men 
and women with whom we shall have to coop- 
,r.i it after we have graduated from college. 

While we are still in college we can at least 
train ourselves to avoid snap judgments aboul 
the problems of individuals whom we do not 
know directly. In analyzing the pre-ent .strikes 
we can avoid applying to them the common 
cliches: thai labor has been ''pampered" 'lur- 
ing the war, that labor is "already overpaid," or 
that management should be "left alone." 

Some oi the eurrenl strikes may have been 
instigated by the "selfish men." Most of them, 
however, are the result of a real fear of the 
loss of purchasing power, fear of the company- 
dominated union, or ol a need for improved 
working condition- (certainlj not an inflation- 
ary demand i asked bui no1 granted by new 
contract.-. Some of them represent a method 
used after the conference method of settling 
disputes had been denied the union. 

We do not condone such injustices as those 
inflicted upon our fighting men and our Euro- 
pean allies by the paralyzing of shipping caused 

by the dock -inkers in New York. The rights 

and nerd- of the former made immediate set- 
tlcmenl of this dispute imperative. We do ask, 
however, that in attempting to explain this and 
similar -hikes we be realistic enough not to 
blame them on the selfishness of the greedy

Dear Editor: 

We read with surprise the let-

indicated disappointment at the 
apparent disappearance of the so- 
ciety question. We do not feel 
that the writers had clearly in 
mind the results of last spring's 
voting, namely, that the great ma- 
jority of the student body does 
not "wish any radical changes in 
the existing system. 

But, on the other hand, the 
societies do realize that every yea;- 
some girls are disappointed be- 
cause of the limited membership 
stipulated by the Inter-Society 
Constitution, and, therefore, steps 
are being taken to instigate cer- 
tain changes which are compati- 
ble with the desire of the students 
as indicated by the questionnaire. 
Far from being pigeon-holed, the 
matter is still under careful con- 
sideration in an endeavor to be 
fair to all concerned. Reports will 
be given whenever any definite 
progress has been achieved. 
Sincerely yours.

October 12, 1945 
Dear Editor, 

Since I have been at Wellesley 
I have felt a certain lack in one 
aspect of college life, but I felt 
that this was perhaps purely a 
personal feeling until recently I 
have been lead to believe that this 
lack is felt by many students. 

What I am speaking of is that 
lack of a bridge to gap the chasm 
found between C. A. and the run- 
ning of the chapel by an admin- 
istrative committee. I don't mean 
to criticize either C. A or the 
chapel committee, but I do feel 
that some means should be found 
to co-ordinate more closely these 
two aspects of religious life here 
at college. Both of them do good 
work, but I am sure that their 
efficiency and effectuality would be 
much heightened by a sort of in- 
termediary between them. I have 
in mind a minister serving in the 
capacity of a full-time chaplain — 
someone who would arrange the 
chapel services (he would only 
preach on occasional Sundays) and 
who, by being a member of the 
C. A. board, might actually work 
with the organization in carrying 
out their programs and special 
services. Equally important, he 
would be in a position to act as 
a spiritual adviser, acquainted also 
with the academic side of college, 
to whom the students might go 
for interested advice and guidance. 
It is an often mentioned subject 
that students have "no place to 
go". This man could answer this 
need. He would be non-sectar^n, 
vet capable of rendering advice to 
people of any faith. 

Although each of us realizes and 
appreciates the help which the

Enthusiastic Washington Interns Recall 
Celebrities, Typewriters, Reformatories 

Wellesley Students Spend Summer i ti Washington-Meet Duke of Windsor, 
Sue Apartment Owner, Rea :1 Secret Cables, Visit Prisons 



"If anything exciting happened 
in Washington this summer it 
happened to us," said Barbie 
Rogers, one of the eleven mem- 
bers of the class of '46 who spent 
a month in the nation's capital as 
government interns. Barbie, Dicki 
Warvel, Ginny Guild, Ellie Stone, 
Phyl Henderson, Ann Titchener, 
Laurie Cutler, Barby Conner, Be 
Hooker, Jo Lamb, and Judy St. 
Clair made up the Wellesley team 
which invaded Washington under 
the sponsorship of the Political 
Science Department. 

Sue Landlord 
The girls were fortunate to find 
nice apartments through the Wash- 
ington Welleslv Club in the over- 
crowded city. "Although we had 
to move four times during the 
month, we were lucky to have a 
roof over our heads," said Dicki 
Warvel. The ingenuity of the 
girls was brought to light when 
they sued one particular apart- 
ment owner for overstepping the 
O.P.A. ceiling on rent. 

Passports, Personnel 
Bea Hooker interned in the 
Passport Division of the Depart- 
ment of State, where she did re- 
search on passport applications. 
Not only did she come into con- 
tact with interesting F.B.I, cases, 
but also with Robert Taylor, the 
Duke of Windsor and Douglas 
Fairbanks, Jr. When the pastport 



Relations. "Technically, I was a 
receptionist," said Ellie, "but act- 
ually I was general assistant to 
everybody in our 22 man section." 
This included personnel counsell- 
ing, recreation, a health unit, effi- 
ciency ratings, housing, an emer- 
gency loan fund, War Bond sales, 
and all sorts of employee services. 
"We kept the employees happy 
inifl kept them on the job," Ellie 
added. 

Ginny Guild and Barbie Rogers 
worked at the Foreign Economic 
Administration, a temporary war- 
time agency which served as the 
the claimant for foreign govern- 
ments in procuring commodities 
from the United States. "Every- 
thing shipped out of this country 
to any foreign government, either 
cash or lend-lease, had to be or- 
dered through F.E.A.," Barbie 
said. Every essential item was 
under the allocation of the War 
Production Board, and F.E.A. 
served as the go-between for the 
foreign countries and the W.P.B. 

The F.E.A. was divided into two 
parts, a Bureau of Areas and a 
Bureau of Supply. • In the Bureau 
of Areas, each country had an area 
desk which was in constant com- 
munication with that country's 
purchasing mission. Ginny and 
Barbie worked in the Bureau of 
Areas, at the office of program co- 
ordination for the European area. 
Here they did a great deal of

job to investigate each persons 
previous record in the files of some 
eleven million names. The ap- 
plications, if in good order, were 
sent on to the domestic and for- 
eign examiners. 

Dicki Warvel was employed by 
the Department of State in the 
Personnel Division. This job in- 
cluded paper work in recruiting, 
placement, or, in the language of 
the layman, filing, typing, and 
processing applications. After 
each potential employee had filled 
out the numerous cards necessary 
for his appointment, Dicki sorted 
them according to various classifi- 
cations and dispatched them to 
the appropriate Placement Officer.

Ellie Stone also worked m the 
Depar tment of State in Personnel 

McKelvey Will Outline 
Wage Control Exercised 
Thru War Labor Board 

Mrs. Blake McKelvey will speak 
to junior and senior economics 
majors at a dinner in the Recrea- 
tion Build'ng, October 24 on "A 
Trial Balance Sheet of the Na- 
tional War Labor Board." 

Mrs. McKelvey first became ac- 
quainted with labor problems as 
an honors student in economics at 
Wellesley. After her graduate 
work at Radcliffe, she went to 
Sarah Lawrence College, where 
she has taught economics since 
1932. For several years she has 
conducted extension courses in the 
University of Rochester, the most 
recent one dealing with industrial 
relations in wartime. During the 
past year she has worked at the 
Delco plant of General Motors in 
Rochester and has served on one 
of the regional boards of the War 
Labor Board. , 

Mrs. McKelvey will also speak 
to Economics 308 on the wage 
polici.es of the Board. 



grams of the commodities needed 
by each country, and the justifica- 
tion for these needs. These re- 
ports were written up on a com- 
modity basis, and were sent to the 
Bureau of Supplv which was in 
liaison with the W.P.B. 

Handle Secret Cables 
Barbie and Ginny worked for 
Paul White, who is Special As- 
sistant to the Director of the Euro- 
pean branch of the F.E.A. Since 
Mr. White was liaison officer for 
the State Department, the girls 
were able to read secret cables 
concerning the conditions in post- 
war Europe, and were able to get 
a good view of the coordination of 
all the departments. They also 
assisted Mr. Samuel P. Hayes in 
writing chapters on the economic 
future of France for a book on 
the prediction of trends in Europe, 
edited by Mordecai Ezekiel. Both 
Barbie and Ginny ai-e former mem- 
bers of the French corrider, and 
put the language to good use while 
interviewing representatives of 



European countries. 

Barby Conner worked in the of- 
fice of Procedures, the manage- 
ment planning office of the War 
Production Board. "I was able to 
get an overall view of the agency 
which I wouldn't have been able 
to do if I'd been in a line divi- 
sion," Barby said. She had a 
chance to hear all the Senate For- 
eign Relations Committee hear- 
ings on the United Nations Char- 
ter, and some of the hearings on 
Bretton Woods and the extension 
of the Reciprocal Trade Agree- 
ments Act. "Although a great 
many people testified against the 
Charter, fortunately they repre- 
sented only a small minority of 
the United States and were mostly 
of the 'lunatic fringe,' " she said. 
"There was virtually no intelligent 
opposition to the Charter." Barby 
heard Stettinius and Leo Pasvolsky 
of the State Department analyze 
the Charter, and saw such well 
known figures as Norman Thomas, 
Hiram Johnson at the hearings. 
Prisons and Reformatories 
Jo Lamb spent her month's in- 
ternship with the Federal Bureau 
of Prisons. She was able to read 
the reports of the shocking condi- 
tions in state and county penal 
institutions submitted by Federal 
officials, and got a real insight 
into prison conditions in the United 
States. Later in the summer, Jo 
worked at the Federal Reforma- 
tory for Women in Alderson, West 
Virginia and was able to gain 
some practical experience to sup- 
plement her work as an intern. 
Offer Objective Criticism 
Ann Titchener and Phyl Hen- 
derson worked in the Personnel 
Division of the Federal Public 
Housing Authority, where they 
were attached to the employee re- 
lations section. They assisted the 
councillors, who handled the griev- 
ances of over 900 employees. "We 
did everything from soup to nuts," 
Titch said. "Our office supposedly 
represented the management, but 
was close enough to the employees 
to get their confidence." In the 
"soup to nuts" category came ar- 
rangement for dances and picnics 
and induction interviews which ex- 
plained the function of Civil Serv- 
ice to the new employees. 

Titch and Phyl worked under 
Mr. Charles Stern, who let them 
in on "everything that was big." 
"His aim was to teach us the 
function of personnel in the gov- 
ernment and to make us help him 
by objective criticism,"'

Major Maillard 
Tells Work of 
Savoie Maquis 

Le Commandant Maillard, lead- 
er of the Savoie Maquis, now in 
the United States on a mission 
for the French Ministry of Infor- 
mation, will speak this evening on 
"Le Resistance Francaise" and his 
internment at Buchenwald at 7:30 
in Pendleton Hall. 

Major Maillard became a lead- 
er in the French Underground 
after the Vichy-German armistice 
in 1940 when the regular army- 
was demobilized. To cover his 
activities, Major Maillard held an 
official position with the Vichy 
government until 1943 when his 
name was definitely linked by the 
Gestapo with subversive activi- 
ties. He then had to go into hid- 
ing, but continued his under- 
ground activities nonetheless. 

In 1944 he was arrested by the 
Gestapo, which tried unsuccess- 
fully to get him to reveal names 
of important resistance leaders. 
Maillard escaped from a train 
carrying prisoners from Buchen- 
wald further into Germanv in 
April of 1945 at the time of the 
American advance. On May 7 he 
was back in Paris to celebrate 
VE Dav.

Kelly Stresses 
New Cultures 
Old Civilization 

Speaking on "Culture and Civili- 
zation" last Wednesday afternoon 
at 4:40 in Pendleton, Dr. R. J. 
Kelly, Professor of Anthoropology 
at Harvard, stated that when 
United States culture is imposed on 
a primitive civilization it should 
be done at the level of their tradi- 
tions rather than at our own. 

Dr. Kelly stressed the interde- 
pendence of culture and civiliza- 
tion, citing examples from his own 
experiences among Indian tribes in 
Mexico. He showed how the highly 
skilled American mind had to be 
adjusted to the unusual tribal cus- 
toms before modern technology 
could be utilized. 

The speaker has also taught at 
Connecticut College and at the 
University of New Mexico

Obstacle Course; Subtle Lighting 
Create Havoc At Housewarming 



by Miggs Ignatius '47 



Had you wanted a glimpse of 
the Casbah, you could have 
found it at Cazenove Hall. Had 
you wanted to stamp out a Vir- 
ginny Reel to the blare of a trom- 
bone and the screech tones of a 
somewhat battered violin, you 
should have been at Cazenove Hall. 
Had your heart yearned for a glam- 
orous moment or two under the 
stars — accompanied by a group of 
voices worthy of a Waring chorus — 
you should have come to Cazenove. 
And, ladies, should you have felt 
the pangs of nostalgia for an era 
lone past — should you have wanted 
to turn back the years and wax 
sentimental over those great and 
glorious and grand tunes of long 
ago, you most certainly should 
have come to Cazenove Hall! 
Wild Party 

For last week, on the eighth 
of October, at exactly nine fifteen 
o'clock, the 107 occupants of Caze- 
nove put on rose-colored glasses 
and launched the first Cazenove 
Floor Warming in the history of 




Wellesley College with enough vim, 
vigor, enthusiasm, and spirit to 
. . . well, anyway, as one starry- 
eyed sophomore put it: "My good- 
ness! It's a wonder the roof's 
still on!" 

Starting on the fifth floor, the 
tenants of Cazenove were soothed 
with toothsome suckers and lulled 
with songs by the "Cazzle" sere- 
nades. On the fourth floor — a 
veritable Casbah which lacked only 
Pepe le Moko to give it the final 
touch of authenticity — Caz's oc- 
cupants were mercilessly put 
through the Traces with a "game" 
resembling the Army's obstacle 
course. Third floor barndancing 
added the middle western twang 
to the evening's celebration . . . 
the ears of the Cazenove girls will 
never be the same again. The 
Caz crew took to the roof when 
they reached the second floor. 
Atmosphere 

Deck chairs and subtle lighting 
were strategically placed on the 
balcony ... a capella under the 
stars was a welcome contrast to 
the blare of floor three's "Turkey 
in the Straw." To give the Floor 
Warming a final touch of hilarity,

Diving Champ Praises 
Wellesley Swimming Pool 



by Angle Mills 'J,7 




ANN ROSS 

Nine National Diving Champion- 
ships is the score that Ann Ross, 
a Wellesley Hygiene and Physical 
Education Graduate Student, has 
piled up behind her since she first 
started her winning streak in 1941. 
Ann first entered the AAU diving 
meets when she was a junior in 
high school and she continued in 
them through her four years at 
Barnard. 

On her introduction to Welles- 
ley during last September's hurri- 
cane, Ann was eating in Seiler|s 
prior to giving a diving exhibit 
when, she claims, "Some member 
of the Physical Education Depart- 
ment come bursting in shouting, *A 
hurricane! A hurricane!' and the 
exhibit was called off." April 
proved a little calmer, however, 
and Ann made her first official 
debut at Wellesley diving at the 
swimming demonstration given last 
spring. Of the Wellesley pool she 
says, "It wouldn't be better; it s ac- 
tually deep enough." 

National Champ 

Ann comes from Port Washing- 
ton, Long Island, on Manhasset 
Bay, but she seems to have spent 
most of her time swimming at the 
St. George Dragon Club in Brook- 
lyn There under the coaching of 
Madeline Karson, she began to 
take swimming and diving serious- 
ly Her cousin, Phen Philbnck 47, 
says she first learned to swim when 
her father threw her in the water 
at the aee of three, but Ann claims 
that that is a story told on her

brother and that she does not re- 
member how she learned. 

"The wonderful thing about the 
meets," says Ann, "is that they are 
never held in the same place and 
you see a different part of the 
country every year." The 1940 
meet in Florida was marvelous she 
says; and the ones in Buffalo, No. 
Carolina, New York City, Wiscon- 
sin, Chicago, Indiana, Oakland, 
Kansas City, and Los Angeles were 
all fun too. The titles that Ann has 
captured at these meets include the 
National Indoor Lowboard Cham- 
pionships of 1941, '42, '43, '44; the 
National Indoor Highboard Cham- 
pionships of 1943 and 1944; and the 
National Outdoor Springboard 
Championships of 1942, '43 and '44. 
Interest in Dance 

But Ann is no "fish out of 
•water" when it comes to other 
sports and other interests. She's 
brushing up on her hockey during 
voluntary periods. She plays tennis 
also. Outside of diving, however, 
dance is her mam interest. While 
she was at Barnard, where she was 
Secretary of the junior class and 
President of the Athletic Asocia- 
tion, she danced in Barnard's tradi- 
. tional Freshman-Sophomore Greek 
Games. All the Barnard girls were 
excited when a write up with pic- 
tures of the Greek Games — one of 
Ann leaping the hurdles — found its 
way all the way out to the Repub- 
lic "of Lebanon, Syria, and was 
printed in Beirut, the capital of 
Lebanon, with Arabic captions in 
celebration of the freeing of 
Athens. Ann's immediate ambition 
is to be one of the judges at this 
year's Greek Games. 

Ann majored in International 
Studies at Barnard. Her emphasis 
on German included four years of 
German language as well as Ger- 
man history, government, and cul- 
ture. She hopes to do rehabilitation 
work overseas, preferably in Ger- 
many or France along the line of 
physical education in schools. 
Meanwhile the ten courses she is

keep her busy.

student employees in some capac- 
ities to help solve the shortage 
of workers that has resulted from 
the enforcement of a 40-hour 
week. College employees former- 
ly worked 50-60 hours per week. 
This means that more people have 
to be employed to do the work. 

Living quarters must also be 
furnished for new employees. As 
yet the college does not have the 
facilities to take care of any 
great increase in the maid staff. 
Until the housing situation can 
be remedied it will be necessary 
to have some student help. 

At present Mrs. Armstrong in 
the Personnel Office is hiring all 
whom she possibly can, but do-

is true that since the war the 
manpower situation has greatly 
eased, but there has been little 
change in womanpower.

WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, OCTOBER 18, 1945 



Prix de Paris Winner 
Explains Annual Contest 



Patricia Blake Calls Vogue 
Contest "Real Opportunity" 



Miss Patricia Blake, Smith '45, 
who was at Wellesley on October 
10 as a representative of Vogue, 
spoke informally at the Rec build- 
ing to a group of seniors inter- 
ested in entering Vogue's annual 
Prix dc Paris contest. Miss Blake 
placed second in last year's con- 
test and is now a junior editor in 
the fashion department of the 
magazine. . 

Emphasizing the fact that it ?s 
almost impossible to break into 
the magazine field without a great 
deal of the well-known "pull," she 
descrobed the Prix as "one of the 
best oportunities ever offered to 
girls straight from college, who 
desire training and experience in 
magazine work.*' 

Prizes 
Six months in the Paris offices 
of Vogue, the traditional first 
prize, has not been a possibility 
during the past few years, but 
this custom will be resumed as 
soon as conditions abroad permit. 
Until then the girl placing first 
is given a year's trial in the New 
York offices, after wh-ch there is 
a chance that she may become a 
permanent member of the statt. 10 
the second place winner goes six 
months on the staff. , 

Each Prix winner is taken on 
a two-month tour of the entire or- 
ganization, tried out in each de- 
partment, and then placed where 
she best fits in. . 

In replv to a query concerning 
the amount of technical tracing 
necessary, Miss Blake stated that 
the editors of Vogue are not look- 
ing for technically trained guls, 
but ^r "talented young «' 



who have fresh, new ideas." 
Job Opportunities 
Since at least two thousand en- 
tries are anticipated this year, the 
chance of winning first prize is of 
course, exceedingly slender; how- 
ever, Miss Blake explained that 
the Prix office has become a vir- 
tual placement bureau for the top 
150 applicants, since they are 
given personal interviews and are 
often hired by large advertising 
firms or department stores.

German Group 
Re-vamps Plan 
For Activities 

" 'Deutscher Verein' is re-vamp- 
ing itself," says Grace Schechter, 
'46, vice-president of the club. 
Starting the year off with a wienie 
roast by the lake, the German 
Club plans many and varied activi- 
ties for the coming year. 

The club has ratified a new con- 
stitution providing for the partici- 
pation of all German classes, down 
to 101, in the programs for this 
year. Formerly, "Deutscher Verein ' 
had two formal meetings during 
the year, at which club members 
acted in German plays. Now they 
plan to have at least one meeting 
a week, and to initiate folk danc- 
ing, singing, games, poetry read- 
ings, spelling bees, etc. at these 
meetings. 

"Some of us went to Middlebury 
in the summer," says Grace, "and 
we learned how a German club 
could really function well." "Deut- 
scher Verein" will therefore have a 
wider purpose, she says, and its 
emphasis will not be chiefly aca- 
demic as it has been in past years. 
Rather than serving as a supple- 
ment to the second and third grade 
German courses, says Grace, 
" 'Deutscher Verein' will come into 
its own, and will be a separate 
language club with a wider active 
membership." 

One of the activities of the club 
will be a German session at the 
Workroom about once a month. 
At this meeting, the members will 
speak only German while perform- 
ing Workroom duties. m 

President of "Deutscher Verein 
is Gail Greenhalgh, '46, Betty 
Bein, '48 is Secretary, Susie 
Dorntge, '48, is Treasurer, and the 
Entertainment Chairman is Lillian 
Levine, '48. The faculty adviser 
is Miss Elsa T. Liefeld of the De- 
partment of German. 



Dr. Marie Cams 
To be Guest at 
Hygiene Dinner 

Faculty members of the De- 
partment of Hygiene and Physi- 
cal Education will give a dinner 
in honor of Dr. Marie L. Cams, 
Associate Professor in the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin Medical 
School, at 6:30 p.m., October 18 
in the Lounge of the Recreation 
Building. 

Miss May Kissock, Professor 
Emeritus of the University of 
Minnesota Department of Physi- 
cal Education and Mrs. Jean Rich- 
ardson Jackson, former instructor 
in Hygiene at Wellesley, will also 
be guests. 

An alumna of the Wellesley 
Graduate Department in Hygiene 
and Physical Education, Dr. 
Cams studied medicine at the 
University of Wisconsin, where 
she has been on the facultv of 
the school of Medicine since 1929. 
She was the first woman to be 
certified as Specialist in Internal 
Medicine by the American Board 
of Internal Medicine. 

Dr. Cams is making a series 
of visits to college departments of 
physical education in preparation 
for her return to this field of 
work. She will study the facili- 
ties at Wellesley, and will confer 
with the various members of the 
faculty and administration. 



Writings by Mayling 
Soong Lecturers Now 
On Display in Library 



To complement this week's May- 
ling Soong lecture series on Japan 
and the Japanese, the library is 
now presenting a display of the 
writings of Dr. Douglas C. Rar- 
ing, Mr. Lawrence K\ Rosinger, 
and Miss Miriam S. Farley. 

The display will include some 
of the material published recently 
by the Institute of Pacific Rela- 
tions and the Council on Foreign 
Affairs. These groups, long be- 



fore the war, were doing an enorm- 
ous amount of work on Far East- 
ern problems. As one of the li- 
brarians has remarked, it is un- 
believable that the American pub- 
lic so completely ignored the find- 
ings of these research groups in 
the years before Pearl Harbor. 

The library's display is designed 
to clarify opinions expressed at 
the lectures this week and to bring 
out many new and equally im- 
portant ideas on the Far East. 



Claflin Spanish Corridor 

Invites Guests to Join 
In Weekly Spanish Sing 

Miss Virginia L. Conant of the 
Spanish Department and the 
Spanish Corridor invite all stu- 
dents who are interested in Span- 
ish to join them every Monday 
evening from 7:00 to 7:30 for 
Spanish songs in the Claflin living- 
room. 

They would also enjoy having 
students drop in any evening at 
seven, right after dinner, for cof- 
fee in the Spanish "salita" on the 
fifth floor of Claflin. Drop in any 
night and brush up on your Span- 
ish! 

If anyone would like to go to 
dinner at the Spanish table some 
night, there will be a list on the 
Spanish bulletin board in Found- 
ers for her to sign. The girls on 
the Spanish Corridor like to have 
guests, so if you are interested, 
sign up, and they will let you 
know when there is an extra 
place. 

Miss Conant urges that stu- 
dents keep the Spanish songs in 
mind and invites students to pay 
a visit to the corridor anytime 
they feel like speaking a little 
Spanish. 



Swimming Club Plans 
Student, Faculty Activities 

Swimming Club will give a 
demonstration of activities and 
tryouts next Tuesday evening, Oc- 
tober 23, from 8:U0 until 9:30 
o'clock in the pool. Free swim- 
ming for all will follow the pro- 
gram. All interested in trying- 
out for swimming club are urged 
to attend. 

Beginning tonight from 8:00 
until 9:00, and every Thursday 
night hereafter, classes will be 
held in the pool for all members of 
the faculty, administration, alum- 
nae and their guests. 

Miss Evelyn K. Dillon of the 
Hygiene Department will instruct 
in diving and swimming. Stunts 
and musical swimming games 
will follow the class. 

Starting Saturday morning, 
October 20 from 9:30 to 10:30, 
and continuing every Saturday 
until May, Miss Dillon will also 
give swimming classes for children 
of faculty, administrative officers, 
and alumnae. Each child may 
bring two guests. 

Requirements for entrance in- 
clude a height of four and one 
half feet or previous swimming 
knowledge. The fee will be $2.50 
for the first eleven weeks, and 
$4.75 for both sessions.

Dean Warns Against 
Abuse of House Phone 

Miss Ruth H. Lindsay, Dean of 
Residence, reminds students that 
use of the house telephones is 
limited to student organizations. 
The student taking advantage of 
this privilege must record her 
name and the name of the organi- 
zation she represents when put- 
ting in the call and also give this 
information to the operator. 

The following organizations are 
authorized to use house 'phones: 
Athletic Association, Barn, Chris- 
tian Association, Choir, Class Of- 
ficers, College Government, De- 
partmental Clubs, Forum, Lake 
Waban Laundry, Legenda, News, 
Press Board, Religious Clubs, 
Service Fund, Tree Day, WBS, 
and We. 

Patients and visitors at Simp- 
son Infirmary may use house 
telephones for college switch- 
board calls without charge. A 
student selling tickets at the 
ticket booth in Green Hall or in 
the Alumnae Hall ticket booth may 
use the telephone located there 
for calls on the college switch- 
board without charge. The public 
telephone must be used for all 
other calls. Students are asked to 
limit their conversations to three 
minutes and keep them strictly on 
business affairs. It is suggested 
that the resident mail be used in- 
stead of the telephone whenever 
possible.

WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, OCTOBER 18, 1945 



Critic Disagrees 
With Smith on 
Duffy's Tavern 

'"Duffy's Tavern", new Para- 
mount picture, is not only just an 
excuse for giving the public a 
fleeting: glimpse of some fifteen 
or more favorite stars, but it also 
has a decidedly wearing effect on 
the spectator. Ed Gardner as 
Archie, proprietor at Duffy's, is 
entertaining for the first two min- 
utes and after that he is sadly- 
lacking in "personal maggot i.- in" 
Archie kicks the English language 
all over the tavern floor. Ii it 
was funny we would not mind, but 
although mispronunciation and 
tangled phrases can be very amus- 
ing when they slip out accidental- 
ly, Archie's garbled words are too 
obviously concocted. 

We cannot agree with the Smith 
College Scan that it is entertain- 
ing to hear Archie spout for two 
hours such nonsense as "no in- 
tense offended", "you're just a 
septic", and "we redesecrated (re- 
decorated) ii". We also fervently 
hope that Archie is not destined 
for bobbysox worship. Let Amer- 
icas' youth continue talking whole- 
some" Pig Latin, "op" language 
and "jive hive". 

Plot Trite 
The plot, which is irregularly 
inserted between a completely un- 
realistic romance, the stammering 
of a pathetic character called Fin- 
negan who has speech difficulties 
of his own, and the antics of the 
movie celebrities, is so tired that 
it would be a blessing if Holly- 
wood forgot they they ever thought 
it up. Victor Moore, phonograph 




record manufacturer, needs money 
to buy shellac so he can open the 
factory and put back to work 
some thirty returned G. I.'s who 
have been getting meals "on the 
cuff" from Archie, who is thereby 
involved in embezzlement. Solu- 
tion? Tell the Hollywood bright- 
lights at the Waldorf your trouble 
and let them give a show to raise 
the needed funds. 

There were a few sequences 
which deserved a laugh, but they 
were heavily outnumbered by very 
"far misses". Robert Benchley re- 
lating the life story of Bing Cros- 
by to Bing's four sons clad in 
loud pajamas is good because 
Benchley usually cannot help be- 
ing funny. Victor Moore is amus- 
ing trying to discover exactly 
when the little light in the icebox 
goes off, finally climbing inside 
only to have his glasses fon up 
and spoil everything. Eddie Brack- 
en as the abused Hollywood 
double who takes over for the 
leading man in the fight ami cus- 
tard pie throwing scenes passes 
for good slapstick, but on the 
whole the movie is without a leg 
to stand on. 

Archie can sound almost funny 
for half an hour on the radio, but 
two hours of him on the screen 
was more than we could take. 
Smith, he is all yours. We will 
take Ronald Colman, thank you.

State Fair Of fers Spirited 
Change from War Movies 

Technicolor Musical Gives 



Well-Integrated Picture of 

Rural Midwestern Family 

For those who are tired of the 
four years of war pictures we have 
just come through, "State Fair," 
a musical in technicolor, comes as 
a refreshing change. A simple 
story of a family at the annual 
state fair, the acting, music, and 
technical effects combine to pro- 
duce a well-integrated picture of 
rural American life. It tells of a 
mid-western family which, for 
Hollywood, is amazingly normal. 

Jeanne Crain, as the adolescent 
daughter Margy Frake, is going 
through the stage familiar to all 
girls, in which she feels vaguely 
unhappy asd restrained at home 
and longs for a real romance. She 
finds one at the fair, when she 
meets a young reporter, played by 
Dana Andrews. 

Meanwhile her brother Wayne, 



played by Dick Haymes, has for- 
gotten his home-town girl in 
meeting a redheaded singer (Viv- 
ian Blaine) in a dance pavilion. 
The affair turns out to be tragic, 
but he is young enough to recuper- 
ate quickly and return to his first 
girl. Mr. and Mrs. Frake (Charles 
Winninger and Fay Bainter) also 
have big moments at the fair when 
the former's huge sow wins the 
grand prize, and Mrs. Frake's 
mincemeat, surreptiously spiked by 
her husband, is rewarded by the 
judges. 

Music Recalls "Oklahoma!" 
Though the plot is simple, it is 
so realistic* that it has a genuine 
appeal. There are few touches of 
sophistication, so that the picture 
is a welcome relief from the usual 
bedroom comedy. The music, some- 
what reminiscent of "Oklahoma!" 
is catchy and well sung, while the 
photography gives an excellent im- 
pression of a real fair, with all

Novel Gives Portrayal 
Of Woman's Character 

Rosamond Lehmann's Recent Book is Unconventional, 
Romantic, Freudian in its Psychological Penetration 



The Ballad and the Source by 
Rosamond Lehmann. New 
York, Reynal and Hitchcock. 
250 pages. 
You will not have read many 
books like The Ballad and the 
Source. It is an unusual, uncon- 
ventional book, romantic and at 
the same time almost Freudian 
m its psychological penetration. 
It is the story of a complete egot- 
ist, a wild Victorian beauty who 
scandalized her generation and 
who at the opening of the book 
appears as a lavender-gowned 
grandmother still inspiring fear 
and fascination in all who meet 
her. 

Sybil Jardine's life history is 
pieced together by Rebecca, a pre- 



cocious child of ten or twelve. The 
story is perhaps far too long drawn 
out, and the narrators — the pre- 
cocious Rebecca, Maisie, Sybil's 

rebellious grandchild, and Tilly, 
the embittered governess — at 
times seem unnatural and even 
artificial. Still, Miss Lehmann's 
method of telling her story, if 
indirect and overly intricate, 
shows extraordinary craftsman- 
ship. From a variety of sources, 
she reveals in detail Mrs. Jar- 
dine's past history, character, and 
her sinister influence on all those 
with whom she comes in contact. 
Sybil Jardine is a unique, half- 
human sort of woman, and yet

Time Off For . . 

Theatre 

The Winter's Talc is a play 
which presents a challenge both 
to the producers and to the au- 
dience. It is an incredible, fanciful 
story, but if the audience exercises 
its imaginative faculties, it is by no 
means a ridiculous story. There 
are passages of lyric beauty and 
high emotion in The Winter's Tale, 
and despite an improbable plot, 
the characters are the complex and 
fully developed human beings 
which we expect of Shakespeare. 
If, by any chance, the audience does 
not imaginatively cooperate with 
the actors, the fault must be found 
in the production, rather than in 
the play itself. 

More Than Fantasy 

On the whole, the new production 
of The Winter's Talc succeeds in 
drawing the audience into the 
charmed circle of "suspension of 
the nature of the play. It succeeds 
also in avoiding a possible pitfall 
in treating The Winter's Tale, that 
of making a thorough fantasy of 
what is really tragi-comedy. The 
fact that the plot of the play deals 
with the loss and rediscovery of a 
princess whose birthright was dis- 
owned by her kinglv father through 
jealously of his queen, smacks of 
the fairly tale; this impression 
could be heightened by the miracu- 
lous reappearance of the queen, 
who had been believed to be dead 
for sixteen years. The Winter's 
Talc is not, however, a fairy tale; 
the intense, though temporary 
jealously of the king, the noble 
courage and dignity of the queen, 
are not compatible with fairy folk. 
And fortunately the general level 
of acting of the present cast is 
good enough to make the audience 
aware that the play has stronger 
under-currents than would be 
found in a pure fantasy. 

Some Acting Faults 

But although the general level 
of the acting was adequate, there 
were instances wherein the actors 
seemed not to be making the most 
of the dramatic potentialities of 
their roles. Henry Daniell, who 
played the part of Leontes, king 
of Sicilia, did not really gain full 
momentum until near the end of 
the first act. He particularly failed 
to communicate the real emotional 
intensity of the workings of his 
jealous passion when he watched 
his wife with her supposed lover, 
Polixenes, and this failure was re- 
flected in the restlessness of the 
audience. Again, Charles Francis, 
in the role of Antigonous, detract- 
ed from the dignity of his part by 
"clowning it;" (i.e., in Act I, when 
all the lords kneeled in supplication 
to Leontes, Antigonous remained 
standing until someone grabbed 
his cloak and pulled him down). 

Daniell and Francis, however, 
redeemed themselves in other sec- 
tions of the play. Antigonous' low- 
pitched, yet resonant speeches in 
the scene where he abandons the 
child added to the chilly suspense 
of the moment. Daniell revealed 
his real acting ability at the end of 
Act I, when, after Apollo had 
taken his wife and son from him, 
he cries, "O cut my lace, lest my 
heart, cracking it, Break too!" Of 
the two leading women, one, Jessie 
Royce Landis gave a satisfactory 
representation of Queen Hermione. 
and the other, Florence Reed, was 
outstanding in her portrayal of the 
worldly-wise Paulina, wife to An- 
tigonous. The only character in the 
play who was consistently inade- 
quate was Perdita, daughter of 
Leontes, played by G«raldine 
Stroock. The choice for the role of 
this lost princess, whose every 
word, even in the rural surround- 
ings of her childhood, "smacks of 
something greater than herself," 
was a thorough job of miscasting. 
The childish, unpleasing voice of 
the ingenue who took this part sug- 
gested anything but the inherent 
dignity of Perdita's royal lineage. 
Production Well Handled 

The technical end of the produc- 
tion surpassed the acting. The 
many changes of scene were well 
arranged, and the stage sets were 
striking, yet simple. The winter 
scene in Act I was convincingly 
cold and stormy. In the second act, 
the delightful sheep-shearing feast, 
with its bright colors and dancing, 
was full of the light-hearted spirit 
of the English pastoral. 

New Division of Acts 

The division of the play into two 
acts, rather than observing the five 
acts which Shakespeare originally 
wrote, was a happy decision in 
these days of the twelve minute 
intermission. With only two acts, 
the audience was kept in the mood 
of the play as well as in its seats, 
and a greater concentration of dra- 
matic effect was achieved. The line 
of division between the acts was. 
furthermore, a good one; the actual 
physical interruption after what 
Shapespeare had as the end of Act

A special Christmas program 



Rabbi Norman Goldburg will 
speak on "Religion in the Armed 
Forces" at 3:40 this afternoon in 
the lounge of the Recreation 
Building. "I think the members of 
Christian Association may be in- 
terested in the experiences which 
relate to religion in the army," 
he stated. Kay Warner, President 
of Christian Association, extends 
an invitation to all Wellesley stu- 
dents to attend Rabbi Goldburg's

Rabbi Goldburg served as an 
army chaplain at two California 
camps, Fort Ord and Camp 
Stonenam, during the years 1941 
to 1942. At Camp Stonenam he 
was attached to the Officers' 
Training School. Since July, 1943 
he served as chaplain at Camp 
Abbott in Oregon. He has re- 
cently left the Army to continue 
his religious work in civilian life. 
Speaking of the religious prob-

service, Rabbi Goldburg stated, 
"There are many interesting and 
complex phases of this subject 
which I hope to explore."

Anthropomorphic Bear 

There was one bit of technical 
awkwardness which will almost 
surely be corrected before the play 
goes to New York. The bear who 
eventually eats Antigonous and 
who follows him offstage in Act I 
consisted of two men, whose bodies 
rippled along under a bear costume. 
When the bear approached the left 
exit, he rose and walked out on two 
feet, looking slightly a nthropomor- 



The goal of Service Fund was 
raised by a vote of the board, 
October 1 from $13,000 to $15,000. 
The reason for such a jump: 
Service Fund wants Wellesley Col- 
lege to be able to meet the present 
emergency without too drastic 
curtailment of existing commit- 
ments. 

For the first time students all 
over the world are free to go 
back to the pursuit of learning. 
The World Student Service Fund 
is now able to go into countries 
with books, and supplies, and aid 
to teachers and students alike 
where no college has existed in 
six years of war, as in Poland. 

W*. S. S. F. has as its national 
goal one million dollars. With a 
goal of $15,000 for our Service 
Fund we could raise Wellesley's 
contribution to this particular 
emergency from $125 to approx- 
imately $1000. As Europe faces 
a winter of starvation, Service 
Fund would like to contribute more 
money to war relief, to countries 
that could not be reached this 
time last year, (Norway, Austria) 
but whose needs are as acute. 

Service Fund announces the 
election of house reps, and the 
appointment of freshman commit- 
tee members. For these members, 
new and old, an orientatvm 
course will be conducted in three 
sessions. The first will be a dis- 
cussion of the workings and aims 
of Service Fund by the chairman 
and the committee heads, followed 
by FOOD and a chance to meet 
everyone. This will be held Oct. 
17 in the Rec Building at 4:40 
p.m. The second will be devoted 
to the coordination of the work 
of the publicity committee with 
that of the House Reps, and will 
be held in Rec. BuUding at 4:40, 
Oct. 25. The third and last meet- 
ing will be held in T. Z. E. at 
7:30, Nov. 1. Here the house reps 
will receive their instructions for 
the week of the drive. 

Lucy Peaslee '46, Head Canvas- 
ser has reported that the house 
reps will have a great deal 
to live up to. Last year the reps 
made Service Fund history by get- 
ting all but $67 of the total amount 
pledged in by May 6, leaving no 
pledges carrying through the 
summer.

Seniors Will Discuss 
Religion in Peacetime 

"What should religion mean in 
peacetime?" will be the question 
discussed by three members of the 
senior class, Kay Sears Hamilton, 
Mary Alice Cullen and Reka Pot- 
gieter, at the C. A. Panel Discus- 
sion next Sunday night at 7:30 in 
the Recreation Building. 

This discussion will be a con- 
tinuation or outcome of Rabbi 
Goldburg's talk this evening about 
religion and the returned service- 
man. Sunday's discussion will be 
conducted from the standpoint of 
the college student and the civilian. 
Phyllis Roberson '46, Head of 
Worship Committee, which is 
sponsoring the discussion, will pre- 
sent the problem and introduce the 
speakers. She promises that it will 
be an evening of lively discussion, 
and an attempt to dispel the apathy 
which some students seem to have 
towards the problem.

sonality. Joe Louis. In fact she 
even picks him to win over Billy 
Conn in about the eighth round. 

Her biography, JoeLoui*, Amer- 
ican, will be published by A A 
Wynn on October 31. Scheduled 
to stun the literary world, this 
book concerns the champion not 
only as a great fighter but as a 
superb representative of the ne- 
gro race. "After all." as the 
Times says, "it isn't every year 
that a Wellesley graduate writes 
a book about a heavy-weight 
champion." 

Eleanor Roosevelt, in her column 
September 21, discusses Margery's 
biography. "The story is simply 
told, without embellishment, but 
I believe many people who would 
not think of reading about Joe 
Louis, the champion, will be in- 
terested to read about Joe Louis, 
the man and the citizen." 

While at Wellesley Margerys 
interest in the prize-fighting pro- 
fession created a mild sensation. 
"While her classmates were on 
houseparty weekends she was in 
Boston catching up on the latest 
news from the ringside and train- 
ing camps." Her nickname, it 
seems, is Cauliflower. 

Margery Miller is now filing 
negatives for International News 
Photos, hoping to graduate to 
sports writing. Her favorites in- 
clude also Beau Jack and Arm- 
strong. Prefering a boxer to a 
puncher, Margery says, "I my- 
self weigh 112 pounds — a fly- 
weight." 



These meetings, held every week 
at the same time, are open to all 
interested members of the col- 
lege community. 



Lecturer Tells 
Progress Made 
By Spaniards 

The social and political progress 
of women in Spain and Latin 
America since the Spanish Revo- 
lution in 1931 was described by 
Senora Justina Ruiz-De-Conde, of 
the Department of Spanish, last 
Friday in her lecture m Spanish. 
Senora Ruiz-De-Conde, who .spoke 
at 4:40 in Pendleton Hall, entitled 
her lecture "Progrese Social en el 
Mundo Hispanico." 

Before the Franco Revolution 
in 1931, Spanish and Latin Amer- 
ican women were devoid of all 
rights, according to Senora Ruiz- 
De-Conde. They were unable to 
vote or be a member of a profes- 
sion, nursing and schoolteaching ex- 
cepted. They were unable to sign 
checks or leave their homes with- 
out their husbands' permission. 

Senora Ruiz-De-Conde compared 
the Spanish constitution formed in 
1931 to our Eighteenth Amend- 
ment. Principles of liberty and 
justice were put forth in pro- 
claiming all Spaniards equal before 
the law regardless of sex. That 
women could vote meant prestige 
in the home. Since then women 
have been able to enter profes- 
sional life and thus be real people 
in their own right.

The Winter's Tale - 

(Continued from Page 7) 
phic, and amusing the audience. 
Obviously, the bear should have 
been sinister and not amusing at 
all; he might better have been rep- 
resented by a moving shadow or 
some other more subtle device. 

It should always be remembered, 
of course, that the plays which 
come to Boston have usually not 
completely emerged from the ex- 



perimental stage. Modern produc- 
tion of Shakespearian drama is 
difficult and complex; changes and 
modifications will undoubtedly be 
made in accordance with the reac- 
tions of the Boston audience. And 
withal, enough good acting and 
imaginative presentation have gone 
into this play so that it should en- 
joy a successful run on Broadway 
during the coming season.
